Somewhat old news, but this lady deserves acknowledgement. Unsurprisingly, Marijana Petir, a Croatian MEP, is viewed with disdain by the northadonian traitors in Macedonia.

The creation of an informal “Friends of Macedonia” group in the European Parliament has triggered strong reactions among Greek MEPs, who said that the EU’s door was closed for Skopje. Although Macedonia is recognised as the country’s constitutional name by most EU countries, the name dispute with Greece has blocked the country’s membership of both the EU and NATO [See background]. The Informal Friendship group in the European Parliament – “Friends of Macedonia” was formed for the first time during the previous mandate of the European Parliament, 2009-2014. The group is composed of MEPs from various political groups who are supporters of the European integration path of the Balkan country. Its goal is to increase the country’s visibility within the European Parliament. Marijana Petir, a Croatian MEP from the European People’s Party, took the initiative to revive the informal group, a move strongly opposed by her Greek colleagues in the EU Parliament. Petir told EURACTIV that the EU “must officially open accession negotiations with Macedonia” as the country was ready to do so. “I strongly believe that this will occur soon,” she stressed, adding that all the reports so far have indicated that Skopje is making continuous progress. Referring to the name dispute with Athens, she noted that it should be solved “in parallel with the harmonisation of Macedonian legislation to the EU”. “I invite MEP colleagues from Greece to join us in the constructive debate, which would contribute to Macedonian’s future in the EU,” the Croatian MEP noted.

Macedonia is our friendly country where parliamentary elections will be held soon, the former MEP from Croatia and a great friend of Macedonia, Marijana Petir said on Monday. I wish the citizens of Macedonia to choose those politicians who will take care of the protection of the sovereignty of the state and the preservation of the identity of the people, and who will give young people the perspective to stay in their homeland, Petir tweeted. She is one of the sincere Croatian and European politicians, who in the past years openly advocated for the preservation of the constitutional name of the Republic of Macedonia and the preservation of the identity of the Macedonians.

Marijana Petir a member of the EU Parliament has been removed from the parliamentarian group “Friends of Macedonia”, by request of the Macedonian government, reports the news portal mkd.mk. The representative of the Croatian Peasant Party in the EU Parliament, Ms. Petir is known to the Macedonian public for being one of the rare voices to oppose attacks by Greek MPs in the EU Parliament and is a general defender of Macedonian identity. In 2016 she restarted the parliamentary group which numbers 20 representatives, however, she hasn’t been treated with the deserved respect by representatives of the Macedonian government led by SDSM. In a statement for mkd.mk, Petir says that the government doesn’t communicate with people who don’t share the same views as them. The government hasn’t contacted her in months, despite paying regular visits to institutions and bodies of the EU. Petir adds that she was contacted by her secretary that a new parliamentary group for Macedonia is being formed in the EU Parliament, to which she hasn’t been invited to join. Petir says she couldn’t stand from the side and watch Macedonia suffer from the injustices that are being prepared by adversarial groups, which is why she has been a staunch supporter of the country. “I believe that the Macedonian people deserve respect and justice – they deserve to be citizens of the EU and part of the European family to which they can bring their full identity,” states Petir for the news portal. With the unrighteous and damaging removal of Mariana Petir from the parliamentarian group dedicated to Macedonia, the Macedonian people and country have lost one of the rare conscientious voices who aren’t afraid to stand up for justice and tolerance.
